Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge Gives Encouraging Update on Gordon Hayward's Return

The injury occurred in November when he was hit in the face by teammate Aron Baynes.

Meanwhile, the Celtics will have to figure out how to fit Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward back in a rotation that also includes Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier.

The Celtics made it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals where they fell in Game 7 to the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers, but they were not expected to make it that far as Irving was ruled out for the season after he underwent a knee surgery to remove screws from his patella.

However, Ainge doesn't want to see either player leave the Celtics this summer. Those guys would give anything to be out there and play.

Just having Tatum and Brown as fourth and fifth options is one of the most special situations in the National Basketball Association, and having those next three options give the Celtics an edge that is impossible to replicate without embracing young talent on rookie contracts like they have.

Celtics' GM Danny Ainge revealed where his point guard was earlier this afternoon.

"So we need Gordon and Kyrie, absolutely need them".

Mayfield, who's embraced the city of Cleveland as the Browns' 2018 first overall pick, has kept up with the Cleveland Cavaliers' NBA Playoffs run.

"I'm here. They're already planning for me to be here", Smart said.

"I get a kick out of the fact that, everywhere I go, people don't think we need Kyrie or need Gordon Hayward", said Ainge.

The C's are "much much better" with both injured stars in uniform.

But he also said: "You never know what opportunities will present themselves". "I've been here four years".

"Hopefully, we'll have an expensive roster", Ainge said on Monday, speaking to reporters after the team's exit interviews.

Morris averaged 26.8 minutes per game this season - his lowest total since the 2014-15 season - and that number might decrease, although the 28-year-old remains under contract for one more year and still should carve out an important role off Boston's bench moving forward.
